95 Songs of Summer, #75 - "In the Year 2525"

Oh man, what can you really say about this song?  If you've never heard it (and I suppose that's possible if you're a few years younger than I am), you owe it to yourself to find the lyrics so you can read along when you listen to it for the first time.  Trust me, you won't be disappointed.  Appalled, perhaps.

Say what you will, but this is probably the greatest one-hit wonder song in the history of pop music.  Zager and Evans never came close to matching the success of this song, and they quickly faded away into obscurity.

And when I was 9 years old, I loved it.  Thought it was very deep.

Zager and Evans, "In the Year 2525," from the summer of 1969.
